I really enjoy intarsia, and I’ve done about a hundred of them. I can’t take credit for the designs, as they are mostly drawn by Judy Gale Roberts. But All of them are a challenge, in their own way, especially the tiger. That took me almost 6 months to complete. The cat on a limb was the first intarsia I ever attempted. It’s not the greatest quality, but it was my first step in the process.

Hello Bubbs! That is a great looking piece! I love to see these intarsia project! It takes a lot off time, and a great eye to put it all together, and have it look amazing! The wood direction, and shading is beautiful. Thanks for showing us!

wow they all look great. I really like the hummingbird and the cat on the limb. The colours are so vibrant, the figures really jump out at you.
